How to draw this?  Halftone lines.

Exponentially decreasing (or increasing, depending on yourt POV) lines - halftone lines. How do I precisely draw them? My attempt is  blatant failure.

 

I am a blatant failure.

    Hi Mathias

     

    Perhaps if you draw the first and last line (the 2 extremes)...select both and go Object > Blend > Make, then select this group and acess Object > Blend > Blending Options to control the intermediate steps you can reach near the result you want.

    Hi Mathias

     

    If you use..instead of specified steps...you use specified distance..then you could perhaps go near what you want. Test it in the Blending Options dialog box.

    With the direct selection tool (white arrow) select each anchor point of the spine curve of the blend and convert it to smooth point using the Convert to Smooth point button on the properties bar. Then move the handles of the anchor points of the spine while holding Shift to constrain vertically until you like the distribution.
